On 31st December I posted about my intentions for 2014. My intentions were low-key and written in a ‘let’s not get too worked up over this’ fashion, so as not to set myself up for failure, self-loathing, disappointment etc. So how, one month in, am I doing? Well, actually, it’s going quite well. I’ve produced more than my target of an average of two blog posts per week, somewhat to my surprise. I’m finding it’s one of those tasks that I don’t exactly look forward to, but once I get cracking I’m fine.
My second intention is working out well. I’m writing down each day what I do that’s in any way creative, and I’ve been able to write something in for every day but one. Don’t know what went wrong on that particular day, but never mind. Probably I’ve done more than I thought I would which is good as it will help to balance those days, and I’m sure there will be many, when I just don’t get round to it.
The third intention of not working so much is a bit longer-term as I can’t just drop things that I’ve promised to do. The key action is to not promise to do them in the first place. And the fourth intention of sticking with the low-carb diet that I’ve already been on for months is a breeze because I was quite sure that I was going to do this anyway. (So it’s a bit of a cheat, really). Onward and upward. Let’s see what February brings.
